Terrarium Ornament

I am going for what I call "Natural Chic" as a look for holiday decor around the house this year and will parlay it through the winter months to make sure I can enjoy it to the max!  I was searching out a look for the tree and came across a beautiful site called Flora Grubb Gardens.  They are located in San Francisco (but can ship many creations to you) and as I browsed the site I was inspired by her Forest Floor ornaments, so decided I would try to make it a little DIY project.

I added in some natural elements from the yard... tiny acorns and pebbles as well as a little sparkle with extra fine glitter and a bit of tinsel.  I'm thinking these would be great gifts, too - A "From My House to Yours" theme!
Found these PLASTIC ornaments at Michael's.  The bigger size is better so you can fit more of a variety of decor inside.
A few different kinds of mosses so you have different textures.  The stringy type can be molded to give you a bit of height to fill the bulb.
It's simply not me without a bit of sparkle!  Just sprinkle the glitter in the ornament after you have added in all your items for a beautiful shimmer.  
I rinsed the mini acorns and patted dry so they were a bit damp... The glitter stuck right to their little "top hats".  So pretty!
